NYC HRA MICSA ALERT 09-26-2014 Medicaid Terminated in Error for 2500 NYC SSI Recipients Download
2014-09-26 Incorrect Stenson Notices SSI State Takeover.pdf
Explains 2500 people mistakenly told Medicaid would be cut off - because they failed to return their "Stenson" Medicaid renewal notice. Those notices are sent to FORMER SSI recipients, so that they can recertify to keep Medicaid without it being linked to their SSI, which they have lost. The State recently took over administering the State supplement to the SSI benefit. APparently this glitch resulted from that takeover.

NYC HRA MICSA Medicaid Alert - Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance (CDPAP) & Managed Care (10/26/12) Download
2012-10-26 CDPAP and Managed Care.pdf
Effective Nov. 1, 2012, Consumer-Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) is included in the benefit package for both Mainstream Medicaid Managed Care and Managed Long Term Care. This change affects both people who have Medicaid only and people who have both Medicaid and Medicare ("dual eligibles). See info on CDPAP at http://wnylc.com/health/entry/40/.

(1) Most people STATEWIDE with Medicaid Only (but no Medicare) are already required to enroll in a Mainstream Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) plan. Those plans will now approve, authorize and pay for CDPAP. See http://wnylc.com/health/news/22/

(2) Managed Long Term Care (MLTC)-- See info at http://wnylc.com/health/news/41/.

Since MLTC is now mandatory as of 9/1/2012 in NYC for "dual eligibles" needing personal care, CDPAP recipients in NYC will begin receiving letters giving them 60 days to select an MLTC plan, or they will be auto-assigned to a plan on a random basis. The MLTC plans must contract with CONCEPTS and Chinese-American Planning Council through 10/31/13 so consumers can keep their current aides. See more at http://wnylc.com/health/entry/40/
